Life is better in close-up #2

Another thing that is much prettier close-up than in real life: the Seb K, also known as seborrheic keratosis or senile wart.

Although these suckers are ugly macroscopically, they are benign, and don't need excision, unless their appearance is bothering the patient. Of course, as with anything in medicine, if they aren't acting as they should be (such as being irritated, painful or bleeding), then they should be investigated to rule out a squamous cell carinoma.

Yes, I am revising. :P
